Stuck it there in the hope of better video and fly it under the most horrendous conditions you can imagine. Glued it back together several times when the wind smacked at low altitude. I can't see any reason to ever take the gyro out. It doesn't interfere with my control, but it does help steady the cam and make gusty conditions seem less gusty.

Exactly. People get horribly confused about gyros, often thinking that the gyros do all the flying.
